GO staff have raised just over €2,000 to support ongoing relief work in Nepal following last April’s devastating earthquake. The money, which was collected through a number of initiatives organised by the GO Cares Committee and the company’s Sports Team, was presented to SOS Malta, and will be used specifically to build two new children’s playgrounds in Gatlang and Jeevanpur.
Claudia Taylor East, CEO at SOS Malta, said, “Through this donation to support relief work in Nepal, GO employees have shown true compassion for their fellow human beings, even though they are thousands of miles away. The Nepal Earthquake was truly devastating and it will take years for the country to recover. SOS Malta is doing all that it can to help Nepal get back on its feet and donations such as this go a long way to ensure we can continue our work to bring back a sense of normality, especially for children.”
The funds raised were collected from donations to the GO Cares Fund, to which staff contributed voluntarily from their salaries on a monthly basis, a figolli sale at Easter time, and through donations collected at an Activity Weekend organised by the GO Sports Team.
